Apple Cinnamon Bread

Breakfast, Recipes, Sweet Bread

I’m always looking out for delicious breakfast recipes, and muffins that I can bake at home. I made this one especially for my fiance since he loves eating muffins or a loaf of sweet bread in the morning with coffee on days we don’t eat our morning waffles. Yep! that’s a thing at our house…we eat waffles before doing long bike rides…or on days we have off together (but i’ll get to that later). I try to include as many healthy/delicious recipes into his life as i possibly can. 

I can’t take ALL the credit, so i’m sharing the link to what inspired me to make this bread….

He loved this bread, and it was perfect before a simple bike ride in the morning or on the go. This recipe is wonderful, and please let me know if you try it!

Before baking, please note not to over-mix the batter. Mix it less than 20 times, that’s right! My version came out on the denser side, so make sure to not over mix and to measure the flour correctly (spoon the flour into the measuring cup and then level with a knife).
